The Top Ten
The best character ever in a drama series!
From Season 3 onward, Walter Hartwell White became the most unbearable, the most insufferable, the most pestilential creature to ever walk the earth... and that was just around his wife. His pride was always there, but his ego inflated further as the series went on. He became arrogant, hubristic, self-centered, at the cost of endangering his identity. And this all happened because of the world around him, causing his rage to be further and further pent up until he emerged as a growling, snarling, aggressive, domineering drug lord, complete with squinting and underbite.
At the start, you feel kind of bad for him. He was simply calm and mild-mannered, even if he did hold a lot of grudges against people like the Schwartzes. You actually kind of genuinely liked him at the start. His boss treats him poorly, his family is dysfunctional, and to make things worse, he gets lung cancer. But then once he gets further and further into the meth business, dealing with a psychotic drug lord ...more
Better than any Supernatural character!
One of the greatest characters in any type of entertainment and the best T.V. series character. He is the one who knocks! - DamnFineCupOfCoffeeV 44 Comments
Oh my God this guy is an idiot. Who made this list?
He's hilarious for one thing, but also he has a very intricate and elaborate personality, which is uncovered more and more as you go through the seasons. I would either say Barney, or Sheldon Cooper, from The Big Bang Theory.
Barney is hands down the funniest sitcom character ever! The guy is LEGEN... Wait for it... DARY he is LEGENDARY

It's something special to completely fall in love with, admire, identify with, feel connected to and inspired by a fictional character from the first moment they appear on screen. All that happened to me with Dean Winchester, thanks to Jensen Ackles' outstanding, brilliant portrayal of the character.
I think it's simply impossible not to love Dean. His handsome looks and spot-on, epic quotes are what first catches the eye; then his charming personality, his brave, selfless protectiveness of the people he loves and his sensitive, vulnerable soul behind the "no chick-flick" bravado will captivate you in no time!
In my opinion there's just no better character on T.V. and I seriously doubt there'll ever be one! - angiewinchester
He's a real hero and an inspiration. The character shows you how to get through bad times and come out on top. As well as being a BAMF he has a great personality that always shines through no matter what the situation and that's something that the audience connect with when we know his traits we can predict how he may react in a sticky situation.
He is an altruistic hero, brave brave, he inspires me to never give up what to believe, he has a great heart this always saving the world
How dare you people put him in 2nd place. Dean is the one with the humor. Like when he looks at the camera in the Scooby-Doo crossover and literally says, "Scooby-Dooby-Doo! "V 70 Comments
He's such a nerd.
Best actor...perfect expressions
He is one of the funniest characters in television history and definitely the funniest and most interesting on the show. I also really enjoy him as a child in Young Sheldon.
He's so awesome and funny. I just wished that he'd show some emotion at times. He's like an extremely funny robot with a great voice. - JHLover321V 12 Comments
I LOVE THIS GUY!
My favorite yellow guy! Homer is the best, there is no scene that Homer plays that isn't funny...
The famous cartoon character, the head of comic The Simpsons Family - MatrixGuy
Super natural is terrible.V 4 Comments
His father is God, and his big brother is Lucifer. That sounds like a protagonist's backstory already, doesn't it? Nope, it's the backstory of a supporting character in a little cult show called "Supernatural". Castiel is an angel--a timeless being the size of a Chrysler building crammed into the body of an ordinary man. He loves books and burgers, he feels no pain or age, he navigates through space and time using quantum superposition and string theory. Such a character would've been easily too alien, too powerful and perfect to relate to, if not for the fact Castiel developed to become that most sympathetic of characters: the outcast.
Anyone who's ever felt different or been ostracized can identify with Castiel. As the series goes on, you find out that he really doesn't belong anywhere: not in Heaven--his home for so long and yet so incompatible with his developing personality (because angels are essentially made to be good little soldiers)--and not on Earth, ...more
Castiel is an amazing and unique character who truly learned and struggled with the concept of free will. He was based on the angel Cassiel, who never interfered, but his character broke free and became something new, and even wrote himself into Chuck's stories where he wasn't fated to be. His guilt, pain, hope, it all stems from his seemingly unnatural (for angels) bond with humanity, and the choices of trying to decide what is right, and if 'right' even exists, if saving the Winchesters is more important than saving the world and lying to do it still counts as good intention. His journey is like no other on screen, and it has only just begun. To see an angel, a warrior of God and preacher of blind faith, be forever changed by a human who he comes to realize is just like him- loyal to an absent father, the good little soldier. And it is heartbreaking to see Castiel slowly lose his own faith- what can it mean for the world when an angel loses all belief in righteousness from above? ...more
Castiel is the most beautiful fictional character ever created. He is an out of place, and curious character, fascinated by humans. He seems innocent and cute, but shouldn't be mistaken for weak. We see him change during all the seasons, sometimes for the better, and sometimes not. Humanity reflects on him like on no other character, we discover how humanity has an impact on him and shapes many of the decisions he takes. Castiel is the angel who fought against his own family because he believed God would have wanted the earth and humans protected. Even when he lost his way, his heart remained in the right place, wanting to save the people he cares about, and earth. Through all the things that have happened to him, he remains the character that I fell in love with in season 4.
He's such a little cinnamon bun!
"I found a liquor store... And I drank it! "
Sam Winchester is an incredible character and it's hard to think of a character who has suffered so much with so little love, affection, or sympathy at his back, because it's almost like no one does have his back on the show, or in the audience. I can't think of a character whose been forced into such a well of loneliness and Otherness as much as Sam Winchester has. He is punished every day of his life, just for being different or for wanting normal, or for wanting a higher education. So often it seems he is punished just for being Sam, and not Dean, and that is no way for any healthy person to live. I want Sam to be loved and celebrated for all the ways that he is himself, and I don't want or need him to be the same as Dean, because that would be boring. Sam Winchester is my hero for standing up to his family when he was still a child! I am so proud of him for doing that! I also want to thank Jared Padalecki for being such a wonderful actor in bringing Sam to life - he does so much ...more
Sam Winchester is a strong character. He's lovable, kind, caring and I love him for that! Another word to describe him? Epatethic: even when he doesn't have to, he forgives and he loves. Exaclty, he loves too much, and I love him for that. Sammy has suffered too much, and he has been betrayed, he got hurt, still he's the same wonderful person, who loves his big brother so much, who tries anything to save the world, to save his dearest and non. His heart is pure despite all of that, despite his life. I wonder if someone actually has his back except Dean, but even him sometimes seems to forget that, and the writers, too. I made a special connection with this character, he deserves so much better than that though. A special kudos to Jared for his amazing performances.
Sam's journey has been more tragic than anything Shakespeare could dream up, and yet he always tries to do the right thing and wants to save people. He is complicated, flawed, and yet empathetic, caring, and with a streak of innocence that he has somehow held on too despite all the awful things that have happened to him. On top of that, he fiercely loyal to his friends but especially to his big brother, Dean. His character is completely underrated and I love him so much! He is our Sammy, and he deserves to be in the top 10.
Sam is the best of the lot of them with their grudges and judgements while they themselves do not behave much better. Every one can make mistakes but only one is expected to continue paying the price for them. He is the lonely soul walking a thousand miles in everybody else's shoes but none ever walk in his. Jared brings a wonderful misunderstood character to life and Supernatural would of been the poorer without him.V 112 Comments
What the heck with Super Natural, God! This guy is more boss than all supernatural people. Daryl Dixon Is the doctor of the walking dead. Ya, I blew your mind. Crossbow, Redneck, Boss, outstanding, doesn't take orders from no one and emotional at some times: Merle's Death, Carol's Departure... Ya. And this guy should be in top ten hands down. I bet about The whole country watches Amc and Bbc... Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Doctor Who. No one cares about this supernatural people.
Yeah Daryl is super awesome! The best person to have by your side when everything goes south.
He's the biggest badass ever
Crap I wish I'd voted for DarylV 1 Comment
At first he comes across as an obnoxious, thuggish idiot. But the more you get to know him, the more sympathetic he becomes as he's faced with the bigger jerks in the world like Tuco, Gustavo and even Mr. White himself.
How is MABEL PINES doing better than him. He may seem like a bad guy, but he shows he has a heart in the episode "peekaboo"
I just love him. In my opinion, one of the most charismatic characters of all time.
What up, biatch?
The difference between Jesse and Walter is that Jesse is actually a human being. Come the end of the series, you will be rooting for Jesse and praying for Walter's death.
Jesse is awesome.
Seriously? Just outside of the Top 10?

THE ONLY REASON I'M STILL WATCHING GOT! "I demand a trial by combat! "
I'll drop GOT the day Tyrion Lannister dies.
"I demand a trial by combat". Seriously what's more badass than this? Tyrion is the bestV 9 Comments
He is kind of hilarious in his own way. Sure, his arc with him endlessly trying to murder Lois can be annoying and repetitive but in his Road To series, he is at his best. - Daviddv0601
VICTORY shall be mine!
If you do not like this character than something is wrong with u! All hail to Stewie Griffin!

Don't get me wrong, I adore Cas, Dean, Sam, and the whole Supernatural gang, but it's a pity Sherlock is number six. He is such a complex, beautifully written character! On the outside, most people hate him for being a selfish, emotionless jerk. But we periodically get to see the gentle side of him. Even though he loves showing off on his little throne above everyone else, he genuinely wants to do what is right. He's Spock, with Kirk's heart. Plus, he's very funny, even when not knowing it.
AH! It was really hard to choose but Sherlock has to be my favorite. At first he seems cold and heartless, but after he got his first real friend after Redbeard died, he bacame softer. You got to see his warmer side. Even if sometimes he still tries to act cold and claim "emotion is a weakness" he still has that warmness in him.
Sherlock is the best! The sexy sociopath who knows everything about everyone in just one look. You gotta love him
Benedict Cumberbatch. Need I say more?

She is just so human. She represents any normal person, who studies, works, have dreams, flaws, fails, happy moments and sad moments. I really miss watching her.
How is he not in top ten... He is tye kind of character that shows emotion even if he does not like it
Loved all of this program. Each character played so well against and with each other. House is the best so smart and so tortured we love that don't we?

Could he be anymore good
Sarcastic and hilarious! Though, Ross has always been my favourite. - Daviddv0601
Supernatural sucksV 31 Comments
Such a bad ass. He almost dies like 20 times to save innocent lives and his country. If he were real he would be the greatest man alive. One of the best characters ever.
When you need to get things done, jack is a safe bet
Jack is a true hero.
So many girls here, Supernatural this and Supernatural that, way too overrated, I swear all the comments of the supernatural characters are by the same person, now Jack Bauer kicks major ass, he wasn't created for the amusement of wet girls, he was created for for being a badass and saving America within a day, he does whatever needs to be done to get results and to stop whatever is in his way, Supernatural is for people that at least appreciate all of that fictional mystical crap, 24 is for the people who appreciate old school action and engaging storytelling with twists and turns, unfortunately, people have moved on and started to forget about this franchise and replaced it with shows like Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad, but Jack Bauer is an unforgettable and an amazing patriotic character that can't be dismissed.
I hated her for most of the series until the end where her attitude became much more understandable.
She's very interesting and complex.
The comic-relief character that steals the show in 2 great T.V. shows? Check. The funniest, most charismatic, and awesome lawyer in T.V.? Check!
Dexter is a brilliant character, and he should've gotten a much better ending.
Dexter is a total badass, dude.
Oh come on, every one knows dexter the best.
Dexter is the most Awesome character on T.V. right after Barney Stinson but Dexter has the better T.V. Show by far, he's the smartest, the toghest and the most badass character on T.V..V 1 Comment

Green Arrow is awesomeV 4 Comments
Best narrator ever. - SourNote2014
He is funny
She is such a beautiful person and I just love her style. She is so eccentric and different. Her mind thinks different - she is intelligent in her own way. She has the most hilarious quotes and I just love the relationship she has with her friends. She is just so supportive and understanding.
Phone is funny, wired, artistic, silly, energetic and so much more. She's a true blue friend and the best of them all. - ThatkidwiththeContacts
Living proof of dumb blonde.
"Why you little! "
The ONLY good Simpsons character, the only one that is funny and tolerable. Pretty sad that he gets strangled by his abusive and uncaring father every day. - KennyRulz244444
One of the funniest character in Simpsons series.
WHHAATT! 42! Bart deserves way higher! How did Sterling Archer get ahead of him! WHAT is wrong with you people!
#21! What a joke. Kids these days don't know what The Sopranos was all about. Tony Soprano easily in the top 3 T.V. characters of ALL time!
To any serious observer ( though many haven't seen him) James Gandolfini's extended performance of this complicated character has to be among if not the greatest acting performance of any venue. - Billyv
That he wasn't even mentioned before was astonishing.
24th position?...r u kidding me?
Best villain ever! He's hilarious, likable, and intimidating all at the same time - invinciblemario99
My favourite T.V. show villain! - Daviddv0601
STEVEN UNIVERSE IS THE BEST SHOW ever
She is so bloody inspiring. I love her for who she is, for the merciless kind of a ruler and the fearless woman too. And she has three dragons, duh. No, kidding. I do not love Dany for the dragons. I love Dany because she's Dany and because she's AWESOME.
What? What the hell is up with you people? Daenerys is probably the most interesting characters EVER. And she has dragons, so.. no one can top that.
Daenerys Targaryen - one of the best female characters in T.V.. The Mother of Dragons. The Khaleesi.
He can blow up planets teleport and is hilarious.
Don't even need to explain..
Played by Ed O'Neill the head of the Bundy Family in the great comic series Married with Children - MatrixGuy
Love the show
Merle needs to be higher, he's the best T.V. character ever! Hilarious, likable, tough, and just a very interesting character - invinciblemario99
Played by Tom Welling, the young life of Superman full with elements of becoming mature and his young love life - MatrixGuy
Superman is very good in this series
He so hooot he sexy, he make me wet all over my privates
How come Jon snow is here? He's like the hero of game of thrones!
Played by Matthew Fox the famous Dr. of the series - MatrixGuy
Probably the most memorable on the list so far. I mean come on it is Bugs Bunny, nearly everyone can quote a line from him easily. - Anonymousxcxc
The baddest witch in ton, and even if she was a little bit of a witch bitch, she was still the total boss
George is funny and human. He does evil things, is egoistic, rats out, tells lies, try to be more fancy than he is, cheap... That's human traits even if we don't cherish them...that's why he s so funny lol - ChatonNoir
Best character ever. Better than pathetic sheldon cooper and unrealistic damn barney stinson.
Now I haven't even watched the show. But after learning about his character I can assure you that Omar is a masterpiece in his own!
This list is a joke. omar little is 48 and well that's bull - theotherguy11
